Change is dynamic, yet this "Anything Goes Generation" is far too scurrilous. Although each season has its time for every purpose, there are certain core values that should remain timeless - a sense of right and wrong, respect, courtesy, manners, humility, and altruism. Although too many Americans are adopting salacious, bawdy individual preferences, many Americans deplore immorality forced upon innocuous television viewers. Those born in decades before the 1970s had a different perspective.

When inspiration hits, Wayne Coyne needs to act on it. “You just feel like, 'This is what I want to say right now,' and you have to absolutely say it before you can be rational again,” the Flaming Lips frontman said on the phone recently from Fredonia, N.Y., where he was working on an upcoming release.  The Oklahoma-based Flaming Lips - who headline the Silopanna Music Festival on Saturday - are entering the fourth decade of a career that...

One of the very best parts of the Miley Cyrus-hosted "Saturday Night Live" on October 5 was a music video. A parody of Miley's "We Can't Stop," "We Did Stop (The Government)" pokes fun at the government shutdown while holding true to the style and tone of the original. It's pretty incredible. Cyrus herself plays the character of Michele Bachmann in the video, while "SNL" actor Taran Killam appears as John Boehner. Between them, the two take full credit for the current shutdown of the government (deriving from Congress' inability to come to any sort of consensus)

Tyler Bowers rode a motorcycle for the first time at the age of 2. His love of racing began soon after that. "I got my first trophy, and that kind of sparked the flame of competition in me," said Bowers, who's from Danville, Ky. Bowers won his first Arenacross championship in 2011, after only six months of therapy to repair two broken femurs. At 22, Bowers has now won three consecutive AMSOIL Arenacross championships for the Babbitt's Monster Energy AMSOIL Kawasaki team, and is trying for his fourth.

It's the 40th anniversary of Erica Jong's "Fear of Flying," which some have described as a breakthrough book for women and for modern feminism. Reduced to its common (and I do mean common) denominator, the book, which was written in the appropriately named "Me" Decade of the '70s, encourages women to behave like promiscuous men, having meaningless sex without fear of consequences. "Fear of Flying" gleefully encourages women to engage in the so-called "ZF. " Don't know what that means?

Doug Gansler's truly bad day of TV optics started Thursday with a Sun story and accompanying picture off Instagram of a beach party the attorney general attended in Delaware. By 9 a.m., the cable channels were running with the picture and the story -- and it went that way on the hour throughout the day straight through the network evening newscasts and prime-time cable. And then, the story was picked up by late-night comedians. Here's what Jay Leno had to say on the "Tonight" show.

I'M EMBARRASSED!" That's 15-year old Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus, denying responsibility for a provocative Annie Leibovitz photo that appears in the June issue of Vanity Fair. Perhaps Miley should be embarrassed about acting the victim, blaming VF, for her own choices. Miley is still smarting from the release of private MySpace pictures that showed her playing peek-a-boo with her blouse (nice green bra underneath) and cozy with a boy. I thought the "scandal" over that was ridiculous.

Ben Cummins of Baltimore purchased two Nintendo Wii game consoles during pre-Christmas shopping: one to give his 7-year-old daughter, Lauren, the other to trade for two tickets to Tuesday's Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana concert at 1st Mariner Arena. Cummins, who last week had yet to tell Lauren that he was trying to secure tickets for her and her mom, wasn't picky about seating for the eagerly anticipated concert. "I'm just trying to get them in the building," he said. Yet since he advertised the console-for-concert trade on Craigslist on Dec. 20, he's had no takers.

It's probably unfair to ask anyone older than 15 for an opinion of Hannah Montana: The Movie, much less any guy older than 15. If ever a movie was geared toward its target audience, this is that movie. So let's get the definite positives out of the way. Hannah Montana is beautifully shot; cinematographer David Hennings clearly fell in love with Tennessee, where much of the movie was filmed, and you just might, too. The landscape has never looked so good. Also, the film earns its G rating; there's nothing offensive or off-color about it, and a little wholesomeness never hurt anyone.

I'll admit it. I kind of hate what Miley Cyrus has done to popular culture (even though I secretly jam out to #Bangerz on a somewhat regular basis.) For one, the tongue thing drives me insane. Every time I see her tongue, I feel like it looks thirsty and I have this urge to throw an open bottle of Fiji at my TV. I sometimes feel uncomfortable with the amount of skin she chooses to show, mostly because she's built like a boy in middle school, so that makes things really weird. Also, I'm pretty sure I pulled a quad at the Pride block party last year twerking to “We Can't Stop.” For these reasons and more, I went all last week absolutely dead-set on hating tonight's episode of "Glee.

At the top of today's list of dumb questions (One at a time, please, one at a time), is this tweet from @Dictionarycom: "Is it ok for musicians to use transitive verbs over intransitive verbs in the name of artisic license?" If you are given to answer a question with a question, try this: Who is going to stop them? The link on the tweet is to " Lay vs. Lie: Miley, Sufjan, and Grammatical Snafus in Pop Stardom,"  itself a response to Sufjan Stevens's chiding Miley Cyrus for using laying  rather than lying  in the song "Get It Right.

It's the visual imagery that usually dictates how a story plays on TV - as well as how viewers perceive it. And the image driving a story about Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler being at a beach party where underage drinking took place is not the kind of visual with which any public official wants to be associated - especially one in law enforcement. All the news conferences, like the one Gansler held Thursday, and all the words of spin the Democratic candidate for governor might muster won't change the storytelling power of a beach-party moment captured on Instagram.

Miley Cyrus doesn't look like a mouse. Or a befuddled bear. Or even a princess. But make no mistake, like Mickey, Winnie the Pooh and Snow White before her, she is a Disney franchise. Miley is the star of Hannah Montana, a half-hour Disney Channel sitcom following the travails of Miley Stewart, a young girl living in Malibu, Calif., who also happens to be pop star Hannah Montana. Costarring real-life dad Billy Ray Cyrus and consistently featuring a wish list of co-stars including Dolly Parton and Larry David, Hannah Montana is one of the top-rated kids' shows of all time (in 2006, it was second only to American Idol among kids 6 to 14)

How's this for a challenging role? A young girl travels through time with her younger sister. Oh, and she's determined to kill God. Still, Lauren Saunders was down for playing Lucy in Single Carrot Theatre 's "A Beginner's Guide to Deicide. " "I was attracted to this play because it challenges a lot of constructs - religion, gender, power and more," said Saunders, 25, who's a fellow with Single Carrot and also works for the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance. "It afforded me the opportunity to explore things as an actor that I had yet to explore.
